* i - BRAZOSPORT FACTS EDfTORWEAGE Brazosport and BrazToria County,. Tuesday. September 29^ 1959 PAUL HARVEY NEWS A Lesson In Dedication As Prime Minister, Winston Churchill used to come over here and slip his hand into our pocket with such a deft touch that it almost felt good to be relieved of a few more billions. Most of the world's leaders * now callously demand money of i Uncle Sam, implying, "If you don't pay up we'll go Communist." Yet Sir Winston, for all Ills good manners in ou'r midst, was , never one whit less British ;than when he was campaigning to his own home constituency. Churchilli in every public ""utterance, left absolutely no doubt but that his first and only allegiance was to Britain. He spoke of "alliances of the English-speaking peoples." He espoused "a United States of Europe." But never did he offer to bargain away one iota of Britain's best interests. In the dark days when pink, white and blue Americans have sometimes diluted their allegiance in hesitant subservience to a mongrel flag, I have wished that some vigorous, forthright patriot might step into center stage. , .a man as mllitantly American as Churchill is British, to help Americans evaluate their blessings. It is not enough to be "against communism," The disgraceful brainwashing of Americans in Korea demonstrated that our youth needs' ''something to be for." I apologize for comparing the giant, Churchill, withthedespot Khrushchev, '. But is we are to salvage and benefit from our recently misplaced hospitality, perhaps it Will be this: America has seen a zealot again. Communism is a godless religion in which Khrushchev believes fervently. His statement that American grandchildren .will live under communism is not meant maliciously. This man .is utterly convinced that communism is best for the most. . Ignorant of, or blindly ignoring, the multiple failures of communal societies in the past, Khrushchev sincerely believes that what he is doing is for the good of mankind. The fact that we know better is not going to rescue us from the fate of blood-drenched Budapest, unless we reassert our own convictions. Americans, as Vice President Nixon has said, must now "stand UD for what we believe." More than "stand up," we need desperately to get behind and push. Americanism is the best product in .the world. Prosperity with freedom should sell like hot cakes in every comer ol the earth. But we must believe in our own product before w* can sell it; If we don't believe in it an more, then, of course Khrushchev is right. HewiU"bury" us. , But 1 do not want my son separated from his family to be , reared in a communal camp and taught just to stay in line, march in step, do as he's told. I do not want my wife herded away to the coal mines just: because the state needs more coal. I do not want the Church door locked or the clergy muffled or the secret police to silence my free voice, my free press. There is only one serum that will prevent that disease. Massive doses of patriotism. The desperation that drove the first Americans to brave a dangerous wilderness must now reinsplre today's Americans to tackle thenewchallenge with patriotism, undiluted and absolite. Anything less will not > good enough. WASHINGTON SCENE... • No Rod Is Un-American By GEORGE DKON pnTSBl/RGH- - NiWta S.': Khrushchev has seen so many, cops on his American tour that he might be justified in think- , ing this' is a police state. I can say with certitude that •the ladies and gentlemen of the press who accompanied him guardians,of roadbuilding, red lanterns.

A. smog murders him—poked his head into the office and demonstrated his elephantine memory. "You moved your desk around," he said and then' he squinted n.ore closely. "You look thinner, too. You been disaapatlr.g?" It had been two years since Randall hac 'lounged around the snake pit with me anr made his cheery small talk; It was pleasant to have him on hand again. "I have made five pictures In three years," he said a trifle wearily, "and I've been out on the coast endlessly for television shows. Seven times back and forth this year alone. And you knov something? I like it even less each timf What a terrible place for a sinus sufferer!' If .you were to type-cast Randall, you'd peg hiw as a million aire playboy. He is that rarity, a hard-working ictor who ha: about him the look of an amiable ne'er-do-well. "In my new movie, Pillow Talk —and in it Rock Hudson gets Doris Day away fronj me ... can you imagine ?—I play a millionaire," he said quite logically. "Except he's a strange one. He's a guy who feels he's, a failure because he's nothing but a millionaire. He was born with eight million 'and CuVa still all he has'when he's grown up—a lousy eight million. He'? very unhappy." ' '"' feny Randall Smog murders kit sin its our great national pastime must . be playing cops without robbers. Heaven knows what he thinks: about the cultural Impact of. v all the gun-girding among us. He must have been morethan *. a little titillated on pass ing this sign over a Oes Moines movie theatre, "Guns, Girls, and Gangsters—also Buck Night." I haven't the faintest idea what' buck night is, except that- this has been a-- good fortnight for passing it. ' •;• In Pittsburgh, Khrushchev visited the scene of the Perle Mesta's greatest social triumph — the Mesta Machine Co. I expected to see Perle leaning out a window but was informed she doesn't work there any more. This company was founded by . Perle's late husband, George B. Mesta, in 1898. ft is one of the few non-union plants in Pittsburgh, but this is none of Mrs. Mesta's doing, Her only connection now Is nominal stockholder. I would think they'd miss her, however, because the plant has so many things that remind me of Perle, She's smolder and has an open hearth. Pretty good, . hub, Perle? Ha, Ha. Before leaving Perle's old stamping — heavy mill stamping- -ground, Mr. K made one of the Mesta janitors temporarily famous, 'the Soviet Premier made a big thing over Dimitri "Mike" Zastupnevich, who has been cleaning up around the plant fof 33 years. When Khrushchev stopped to chat in Russia with Zastup- nevich, Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko went on ahead. But when Mr. K learned that Janitor Z was from Minsk, he ' ran after Gromyko and dragged him back. "He's a White Russian; just 'ike you," Khrushchev told 'romyko. The sad-faced For- ign Minister squeezed out a •nUe.

Nixon Lynching Weaker 9 i *' - . ^e*r• - • • -, • , / , .By L'H.E C. WILSON V; ' United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) --A political lynching which seemed inevitable only a few months ago has . been postponed by now arid, likely, abandoned. • .'.'• : •-,'*. '• , .'; - To be lynched were Vice Presldent'.Rlchard M. N&on's presidential ambitions. ;Not with a rope over a tree limb, you understand, but by equally deadly means. -•• '.-.'•}• .The method would have been to implant deep and- .widely In the United States.the idea that Nixon can't win. This is a method with a brightly successful past as in 1952 when it hashed the late Robert A. Taft's final bid for the Republican presidential nomination. There were contributing factors to the political destruction of Taft such as the holy war waged against him by a.holy man. This holy man was Sherman Adams, who came to know in time the destructive impact of a holy war which was waged against him. The holy war against Adams'holy war against Taft merely helped bar the senator, from a job he wanted. However that may be, the most deadly of the shots fired at Taft in 1952 were three little words: Taft Can't Win! Republicans, especially, the fat cat Republicans the stuffed shin parry big shots, began repeating that phrase among themselves and to themselves until they believed it. That was the end of Taft. ' Something like that was In the works for Nixon. Harold E. Stassen began it in 1955-56 when he tried to prevent Nixon's renomination for vice -presidentr Stassen has performed several political belly whoppers of which thestop- Nixon effort of 1955-56 was the gaudiest and .splashiest to date. Stassen's effort could have some carryover effect, into 1960, .and it is far too soon in this September of 1959 to say that it will not carry over at all.. • " •• .• . .'.• / The anti-Nixon politicos have a bright new fac< going for them now and into 1960 just as the f aft lynching- party had a bright new face going for • them in 1951-52. That face, of course, belonged to Dwight, D, Eisenhower. The bright new face now is the smiling trade mark of Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York. Rockefeller did not stick to bis mid-summer . plans of accepting the verdict of the pollsters this November in deciding whether' to run next year. If he had stuck to that plan, his smile would be fading now and fast. The polls are doing a job for Nixon right now which he, least of all, could do for himself. The polls are refuting the Nixon cant win idea. They plug the Idea that Nixon can't win. There U nothing dearer to the heart of a party fat .cat, stuffed shin or plain politico, than a winner. All of this is pleasing to Nixon's friends and advisers. Friends and advisers, however, often are a nervous lot. They are counting-the!i blessings as the polls come in, but they have their worries, too. Their principal worry is that It may not last, • that something may happen before convention tim« to put volume into a chorus of "Dick's s flni fella, of course, but he can't win." .

It was armed with almost unlimited guns and ammunition captured from the Japanese by the Russians and given to the Chinese Reds. This is the same Lin Piao, now 51. who became Red China's new defense minister a week ago.
